These Tips Will Help You Match the Musical Genre to the Wedding Moment!

Every single second of your wedding day deserves to be nothing less than pure perfection. Of course, a lot of elements will contribute to this: the food, the ambiance, the lighting, the décor, and even the actual location of the wedding itself.

Of all these elements, though, one that you really don’t want to leave for last is your wedding music. Planning the perfect wedding music for your special day will help you create the right energy for each and every special moment of this event.

How do you coordinate musical genres with different wedding moments, though?

Here are some tips you might want to keep in mind.

  • You should play something soft and slow for the wedding ceremony. When the guests take their seats, when the wedding processional takes place, and when the recessional takes place, you want to make sure you create a very romantic atmosphere. The best way to do this is by using soft jazz songs or instrumental songs (not necessarily classical music!). This type of music will make everyone feel relaxed and in the mood for everything great to come.
  • You should play something sweet and catchy for the entrance. When you make your entrance at your wedding reception, you want to make sure you make everyone feel ready to party. Songs like Maroon 5’s “Sugar” are especially great for this kind of moment. Also, do make sure to dedicate a special song for your wedding party entrance too, to show them how much they mean to you. This song should be energizing and full of “party vibes” (such as Black Eyed Peas’ “Let’s Get the Party Started” or Pharrell’s “Happy”).
  • For your wedding dance, choose a soft ballad, a soul song, or a slow pop. You want to be able to dance to this easily, but you also want the song to send out positive vibes and romantic notes. There are hundreds of examples in this category – what’s most important is that you feel with this song and that it truly speaks to you.
